Commission for Celtic Man, done as a gift for my sis GrayWolf, of their two chars (wolf and Irish Elk) and Duncan, Gray's pet ferret...I made the knotwork and spirals orange and green to symbolize the colors of the Irish flag (since the location is in Newgrange, Ireland), and the kilt in the colors of Celtic Man's family tartan (or as close as I could approximate it, anyway). The flowers and jewelry are also symbolic of the chars. :)

It seems odd that the moose is licking the wolf.

This is BEAUTIFUL!!! I adore how you managed to make the creatures look humanoid while still making it look realistic. Some anthro ends up looking too cartoony. That isn’t a bad thing, it’s just a different and less challenging way to draw it. Well done!!!
